Tumblr User Follows Bob Ross with MS Paint And It Actually Works

Alright, this is downright, straight up, all around impressive. And the final result was good enough that you could tell the trees were pretty happy. Tumblr users are a creative bunch, doing stuff like writing an alien invasion story where the aliens are fought off by wildlife or expounding on wacky historical facts. Seriously, following along with MS Paint is brilliant and highly commendable.

Guy Claims Sculpture Is The Epitome Of Western Male Art

When these sexist morons went ahead and claimed that this beautiful sculpture of a woman ("The Forgotten Melody") stood as an epitome of Western Male Art; they were swiftly fact checked. Turns out the sculpture was in fact created and painted by, Luo Li Rong. Sucks to suck, Ivan.

Tumblr Thread On The Art World's Most Hated Elitist Anish Kapoor And His Bean

Buckle up for one wild ride. Long story short, it sounds like Anish Kapoor is one selfish and elitist jerk.

Fortunately, there was someone named Stuart Semple who was ready to fight the good fight; and ultimately bring the cool and pretty colors back to the world.

We're not sure what kind of person tries to spray paint a four hundred dollar vase, but it makes sense that it's the same kind of person who demands that the store she bought it from pay for her mistake.

For a triumphant story of an employee who actually gave an awful customer a piece of their mind, check out this cashier who told off a Karen and lived.
